Stacking The Shelves and Sunday Post

This meme is hosted by Tynga over at Team Tynga's Reviews, which she describes as follows:

"Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!"

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

Last Sunday's Game 2 versus Nashville Predators was an exciting game. We lost 5-4 in double overtime :(

In Game 3, the 1st period ended with Nashville leading 3-0. I thought we were destined to lose, but the Jets rallied and made a comeback. We won 7-4!

I don't know what happened in Game 4! It looked like it was going to be a shutout for Nashville, but Laine scored late in the 3rd period but it wasn't enough to save us.

But in Game 5 last night, the Jets were back on their game and we won 6-2! We are leading the series 3-2 and we could clinch it with Game 6 tomorrow night.

We're almost half-way. Let's do this, Winnipeg Jets! We believe in you! #GoJetsGo!!

Ha ha, gotta love Homer!

I bought this Daily Deal at Audible this week:

The Life We Bury
by Allen Eskens
(Detective Max Rupert, Book #1)

I received this audiobook for review:

by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
(House of Night Other World, Book #2)

Thanks again, Blackstone Audio! I guess I need to finish the House of Night series so that I can start this new spin-off!

Yay!! SYNC is back!! If you are not familiar with this program, you can download two audiobooks FOR FREE every week for the next 12 weeks. The only catch is that you have to download them before they are replaced with a new pair every Thursday at 7:00 a.m. EST. Once you download them, you can listen at your leisure and they are yours to keep forever!

Here is some info on this week's offerings:

Welcome to Week 2 of our 2018 SYNC season! This week’s pair of audiobooks includes a nonfiction and author-narrated book that will take you places you might find beyond imagination, and a novel, also performed by the author, about which we’re sure you’ve heard friends enthusing.

THE DEVIL’S HIGHWAY, written and read by Luis Alberto Urrea for Hachette Audio, provides an investigative report on conditions and events that occurred when 26 people attempted to cross the border from Mexico to the U.S. at a place long known both for its natural dangers and as an indigenous trail now bifurcated by a political boundary. Urrea’s writing and his reading reflect finely polished words, words that nonetheless point out the harrowing and often deadly results arising from the choice to move north in spite of inhospitable climates both geophysical and geopolitical. Urrea won the Lannan Literary Award for this book, which was also a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize.

SOLO, by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess, is paired with this. Read by Kwame Alexander for Blink, with music by Randy Preston, this novel in verse takes us along when teenaged Blade decides the only way to become satisfied with his life is to leave his home behind and travel to Ghana. Both the novel and the audiobook are suffused with music, Blade’s passion. Listeners can also enjoy music from Randy Preston that inspired the author as he created and wrote about this character.

Remember that you can save your SYNC audiobook downloads forever once you retrieve them each week. This week’s pair makes great listening now and also for later in the summer when the road might be your own home for a while.

Happy SYNC season to all! Now download this second pair and start listening! Go HERE.
